(105/231) 3056960 - First view brought to front on close all (global)

When working with two views, if C+e C+w (Close All) is executed in the second view, then the buffers are closed and the first view is brought back to the front.

On a side note, this also closes all buffers among all views even when the BufferSet scope is not set to global, but I don't know if that qualifies as a bug or not.

i agree, the focus should not change before/after a close all.

Close all means all buffers everywhere including the other views.

There is a "clear bufferset except active" which you can use with non-global bufferset scope that will do what you want - just clear your own bufferset.

One problem is, closing a buffer in the non-active view can cause another buffer to open there, which then can cause one of the plugins to do something in response, which then might grab focus in a dockable or something.

Still Reproduces in jEdit 5.0pre1, regardless of global or editpane scope.

Does NOT reproduce when using new action added to 5.0pre1, Close All (local), and Editpane (default) bufferset scope.
